750 ml corked bottle, $12 from Ned's.
Appearance: Dark brown as its poured, but sits completely black and opaque in the glass. Medium brown head retains OK, but quite a bit of nice lacing.
Smell: Sweet with chocolate, almost like a cupcake. NIce cold coffee aroma, not too bitter. Bourbon barely there.
Taste: Very good, balanced flavor. Sweet and bitter. Chocolate and coffee upfront. Not a huge, chewy malt flavor, but good. Some bitterness and bourbon flavor in the end-- much more bourbon taste than flavor.
Mouthfeel: Honestly its a little on the thin side. I think that ups the ability to drink it fast, which isn't good.
Overall: Its quite a good imperial coffee stout, and I may buy it again to share with out of towners, but its not as good as either Wake n Bake or KBS, both of wich are cheaper. The packaging is nice, but I'd rather have a cheaper bottle and cheaper beer.
Serving type: bottle
